Things Posts About Me”
Which is not to say that there’s no agonizing involved. Quite the contrary, in fact. I can debate what to have for lunch until dinnertime. Picking out a birthday card or anniversary present can lock me up for weeks. Deciding to buy this house almost sent me into a coma.
Okay, so it’s really not quite that bad. But I do hate to make a decision before I have all the facts, and weigh all the options, and consider all the alternatives. And I do mean ‘all‘. I make charts and lists and comparison graphs, and generally annoy the piss out of anyone else who has the great misfortune to be involved. (Which is usually my wife. I don’t know how she puts up with it.)
But the upside is — after going through all of that, I never second-guess myself afterwards. Oh, sometimes my decisions are wrong. Oh, yes. Horribly, shockingly, often expensively wrong. But I’m always comfortable that I made the best choice I could at the time, given the information available. (And my limited capacity for logical reasoning.) So there’s never anything to beat my head against the wall about. Which is good, because it’s usually still bloodied and bruised from the pre-decision beatings. I don’t think I could go through it again so soon.Permalink | No Comments
